Competency 2 Assessment

Instructions: This Competency Assessment will allow you to apply concepts of population-based practice and community as partners.
For this course Competency Assessment, you will need to conduct a community assessment using assessment and evaluation tools, identify principles of community-based participatory research, and describe data sources using mixed methods for evaluation in a particular community context.

Many of you have traveled and participated in international/global immersion experiences, or a local practice where you may be an outsider (not a member of the community for whom you are caring). Others of you may aspire to practice in international settings. Also, in this unit, you have been introduced to the idea of genetics/genomic risks.

For this assignment, submit your assignment in which you do the following:

1. State two issues that may be of concern among vulnerable populations and possible solutions to combat such issues.

Please Note! 

My 2 Vulnerable Populations are: 

a. Children of low-income families 

b. The Mentally disabled 

Emphasis should be focused on the following topics:

· Increase school dropout.

· Use of Drugs.

· Low quality of health/Poor health outcomes/Inadequate healthcare/ poor healthcare

· Increase risk of chronic health conditions such as diabetes.

· Increase mental health needs

2. Succinctly describe the relationship between health literacy and population health outcomes.

3. What has been your experiences understanding 1) and 2).

4. As you process some of the ethical issues and concerns about ethical engagement highlighted in the readings and media offerings for this unit

Please identify how you will ensure your engagement is helpful rather than well intended but ineffective (or worse).

· Submit your reflection by the last day of this unit.

(min. 5 pages- not including cover page or references)

Studies of parenting find that low family income and maternal hardship hamper children’s cognitive and social competence. 14 Moreover, parents in poor living environments have difficulty nurturing and protecting their children, increasing the likelihood that children will gravitate into activities and peer associations leading to school dropout, premature sexual experience, use of drugs, and other deviant behavior. 15 Family deprivations also increase the probability of abuse and neglect of children, who then seek to escape the household early, associate with inappropriate peers, form tenuous sexual partnerships, have early pregnancies, and often replicate the pattern of inadequate parenting they experienced as children. 16

Recommendation

Payments to health plans and providers should promote quality health care and improved health and functional status for all patients, including vulnerable populations. Adjusting payments for differences in health or functional status is especially important for Medicare, Medicaid, and other payers that have significant enrollment of individuals with chronic illness or disability so that health plans and providers have an incentive for developing innovative models of care that best serve these individuals

Additional investment should be provided for developing, evaluating, and supporting effective health care delivery models designed to meet the specific needs of vulnerable populations. The lack of evidence of effective approaches to enhance the health and functional status of persons with chronic illness or disabilities suggests the need for significant additional investment in research and innovation for health care and rehabilitation programs serving these patients. In addition, telemedicine and similar innovations, incentives for health care professionals to practice in underserved areas, and enhanced availability of prehospital emergency services should be assessed as approaches for improving the access to care of those facing geographic barriers to appropriate care.
